Blue Screen ON VM After P2V Conversion of Windows 2000 Server

Hello,
Upon boot up of VM after conversion - I get a blue screen with the following error:

STOP: 0x0000001E
Address 804A1C07 baes t 80400000 - ntoskrnl.exe

The physical machine I am converting is an old Compaq Proliant 800 Server with three 18.2 gb ultra scsi 3 drives.

The ESX host is a Dell 2950.

I had the same issue with another similiar server, but i fixed it by changing the SCSI host adapter type from Bus Logic to LSI.  

I tried that for this server, but the only thing that happens is the blue screen changes from the error above to "inaccessable boot device".

Thank you for your help!

All,

Thank you for the responses to the question.

What fixed the issue was the info initially provided by za_mkh.

However - the only thing that I did to fix it was downloaded the SP4 rollup, installed in on the Windows 2000 server and reran the VConvertor to do a P2V conversion.  It fired right up - no problems.

I did the same for 3 other W2K servers that were giving me fits after P2Ving them and they all worked.

Thanks a bunch.
